Louis Vuitton’s new creative director, Virgil Abloh, has been wasting no time in making a splash.
After turning heads and filling up Instagram feeds at Parklife a couple of weeks ago, the Off-White boss was ready to debut his first Menswear show for Louie V in Paris this week.
Kanye’s ex art director mined his extensive music industry connections to put together a crack team of models from across the world of hip hop.
South London rapper Octavian took to the catwalk in an all-white outfit and striking blue shades. He joined other rappers on the catwalk including Kid Cudi, Playboi Carti and A$AP Nast, while Kanye West watched on from the front row.
The French-born Octavian exploded on to the scene with last year’s “Party Here” which found fans in Drake, Stormzy, BBK, Benji B and, of course, Virgil Abloh.
The 22-year-old’s upcoming mixtape will fuse elements of R&B, garage, Dancehall, trap, grime and house will be out this summer.
